Auxilium nunquam deficiens.

Help never failing

XLIII.

Bina pericla unis effugi sedulus armis,
Cm premererque solo, cm premererque salo,
Incolumem ex acie clypeus me praestitit, idem
Navifragum apprensus littora adusque tulit.[1]

Double danger have I escaped by careful use of one set of arms, when I was hard-pressed on dry land and when I was in dire straits amidst the swelling billows. My shield brought me safe from the battle. The same shield, when I seized it, carried me, ship-wrecked, right to the shore.

Ein hilff die nimmer faelt.

XLIII.

Mein schilt hat mier zwier wol genutzt,
Erstlich zu land in einer schlacht,
Hat er mich vor den feinden bschutzt,
Darnach aus wassers noeten bracht:
Dardurch ein yeder wol eracht,
Das offt mal gar ein schlechtes ding
Dem menschen zaigt gro hilff und macht,
Wan das gluck wil das aimm geling.
